Tonight during Trending Tracks, we featured this bit of country music history for you! It was on this day sixteen years ago that Dierks Bentley made his debut at the Grand Ole Opry singing his debut single "What Was I Thinkin'" from his self titled debut album! This song was also his first #1 single reaching the top of the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in September of 2003. Just two years later in 2005, Dierks was invited by Marty Stuart to join the Grand Ole Opry and he was inducted as a member on October 1st singing "Come A Little Closer" during the cerermony.
